Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Trapeze School in NYC, courtesy of TD Bank. It was SO exciting! this was for a TD Bank promotion.
It was over 92 degrees that day, and I wasn’t feeling quite up to flying through the air, so you will not see me in the video, but I am in this photo, fourth from the right, learning the “superman stance,” the initial stance you take before you take to the air!
I did take a turn on the trampoline, however. It reminded me of the time I was ten years old and my parents, for some reason I still cannot fathom. took me to Grossinger’s hotel for a few days. they had a huge trampoline, not unlike the one at the Trapeze school. Back then, I had no fear, and jumped and jumped on it until they literally pulled me off!
But I digress: the point of all this, including the flipping and flying through the air, is that TD Bank has a new promotion that will net you not only a good bank in which to open your accounts, but a FLIP camera as well. If you are thinking of opening a new account and crave a flip camera, you might want to consider TD Bank. Here are some of the details (note that I am not paid to promote TD Bank–and I already have and use a FLIP camera — I am just giving you the lowdown on your options if you want to consider this promotion) plus some 4 first steps to take when figuring out what type of account works best for you:
TD Bank Checking Account Options:
4 first steps to take when figuring out what type of account works best for you:
Know your banking behavior: Ask yourself what you want to do with your bank account. How often will you be depositing and withdrawing money? Will you be sharing an account with another person? You need to know what your banking behavior will be in order to identify the right account for you.
Coordinate schedules: If your schedule doesn’t work with most bank hours, the best bank might be the one that has extended hours and days. TD Bank for example, is not only open 7 days a week in most markets but 361 days too. If you are web-savvy, look for accounts that offer quick and easy online banking. All of TD Bank’s checking accounts offer free online banking and bill pay.
Convenience is key: Convenience can mean something different to everyone. If you value certain services or conveniences, you may be willing to pay for them. Consider all options and ask yourself if it’s really going to bother you to pay a few bucks each month for that “gotta have it” feature. But, maybe it isn’t.
Do your research: Remember to ask other people for opinions or media reviews. Just remember that negative experiences will be more common than positive ones. People upset at a bank are motivated to spread the word – happy customers often don’t realize they are happy.
*the TD bank promotion is only going on for a few weeks in June–so if you want to take advantage of it, go to your closest TD Bank and “check” it out (pun, intended)
